  • Last Updated : 08 Jan, 2018


The join() function is built-in function in PHP and is used to join an array of elements which are separated by a string.

Syntax

string join( $separator, $array)

Parameter: The join() function accepts two parameter out of which one is optional and one is mandatory.

  • $separator : This is an optional parameter and is of string type. The values of the array will be join to form a string and will be separated by the $separator parameter provided here. This is optional, if not provided the default is “” (i.e. an empty string)
  • $array : The array whose value is to be joined to form a string.

Return Type: The return type of join() function is string. It will return the joined string formed from the elements of $array.

Examples:

Input : join(array('Geeks','for','Geeks')
Output : GeeksforGeeks

Input : join("-",array('Geeks','for','Geeks')
Output : Geeks-for-Geeks

Below program illustrates the working of join() function in PHP:




<?php
    // PHP Code to implement join function
      
    $InputArray = array('Geeks','for','Geeks');
      
    // Join without separator
    print_r(join($InputArray));
      
    print_r("\n");
      
    // Join with separator
    print_r(join("-",$InputArray));
?>

Output:

GeeksforGeeks
Geeks-for-Geeks
